Singer Lulu nearly missed out on performing with British boy band Take That on their reunion tour, because it took so long to organise she decided to book a holiday instead. The SHOUT star, 57, thought the dates had not been finalised, and had started packing her suitcases - but she quickly changed her plans. The veteran hitmaker insists the band just aren't the same without her, and is preparing to blow fans away in June (06) with her blasting voice. She says, "The boys wanted me to do it and I wanted to do it but I didn't think it was happening. "So many people have come up to me saying they were upset I wasn't with them in Scotland. "I've been saving it for the stadiums and I know it will get a big reaction. I may be surprised and they might all boo, but I doubt it."
